these companies at some point should just get together and offer a full week when all season passes are on sale for some of these games... there is no fucking way they would lose money, especially for some of these older games where people just cant justify paying more for season pass content then what the current version of the full retail price would cost them used in physical format :/ its just smart business and i have no idea why these companies price some dlc as ludicrous as they do anyways ... it blows my mind how much gaming as a medium still has to grow on some of these fronts :( selling more at less is still going to generate more revenue then they could possibly be making selling at the prices they do now seriously did any of these people go to business school? lol

I like sales because in Canada the main game went from 60 dollars at the beginning of the generation to 90 dollars. I find these sales much better than pre xb1 days, I don't recall as much going on sale or as soon.

If they draw extra attention to an old game, they have to prep support channels as well. I think there comes a time where the amount of sales gained would be not worth their time to get all the paperwork in place or to even do the extra accounting on some things. It has to be a projected worthwhile gain to be worth their time, and your worthwhile amount is probably different than theirs. In addition to support channels, and accounting, they probably have to have their lawyers go over contracts etc to make sure any contracts are adhered to along with proper review of licencing and royalties if applicable. Indy would different, but I can imagine the bureaucracy with these bigger companies.

Looks like I'll be getting a USD gift card and getting LEGO Jurassic Park for less than half price in the UK store

If you don't have the 360 version, it's £9.99 atm. Still crazy though that this version is £22 and US is $10

I want to grab Kings Quest but the discount is not tempting enough. Would also have to replay episode one.

I know what you mean, it'll come down (I think/hope) later in the year. I'd take it for £10-£12

I was looking to see if there was a sale on ESO, there wasn't so I bought it a few days ago, this is just typical.
If it works, it isn't stupid.

Yeah, even if I bought it now, I would not play it immediately. Have Final Fantasy, Just Cause 3, Yu Gi Oh, Unity and Battlefield 4 to crack. Likely to go on sale again. I had the same though about Telltale's Batman season pass. Grabbed Michonne's, Tales of Borderlands' and GoT's season passes instead.

Really? How did I missed that? Ugh... oh well. I might get it anyway.

Also might get FF Type-0... i'd like to go back into this game...

Middle-earth pricing in the UK is a joke compared to the US. I see for the inferior 360 versions the pricing/exchange is far more reasonable. Can I just change my region to get it at the US price?

Ive never played Star Trek Online but can someone tell me what 23000 Zen gets you in game? I'm just really curious as to why anybody would spend $150 ?? And that's 25% off!

I own the season passes for both CoD Ghosts and AW on the 360. Do I have to purchase them again on the One or do the season passes transfer over?
